On Friday, and over the weekend, I started working on some new notebooks. I recently bought a new printer, which came with a scanner, and wondered if I could do some drawings, ink them, scan them in and create notebook covers.
It’s a pretty basic way to work but I don’t do computer design – everything I make, prints included, are sketched, planned and drawn using pencil on paper.
I’ve sewn these notebooks up now and think they look really good. I’ve also made two other designs – one with retro roses and another called ‘strange family tree’, which has silhouettes of people’s heads, like old cameos, but also outlines of other family animals like pigs, dogs and birds.
